The Slightly used almost GUNDAM of Jetan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jeddak Odysseus Carter with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 19.106 billion Jetanese have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thark. The average income tax rate is 79.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Jetanese economy, worth a remarkable 3,015 trillion Jetanian Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 157,827 Jetanian Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

No one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers, search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, and there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jetan's national animal is the Thoat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Jetan is ranked 157,552nd in the world and 4th in Alyr for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -2.37 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
